Next Microsoft Patch Tuesday includes IE 9 fix

This coming Tuesday, Microsoft is scheduled to release its latest monthly patches and security updates for various products. Its official security bulletin doesn't have any details of what is contained in the patches, other than there will be nine of them and that three will be of a critical nature.

The patches will be released for software such as Windows, SharePoint, Office, Office for Mac, and Internet Explorer 9. It's the last one that's perhaps the most interesting. PCWorld.com reports that Microsoft just released a patch for IE 9 in June and that the company usually releases IE patches every two months. Andrew Storms, director of security operations for nCircle, says of the IE 9 patch, "It's pretty safe to say this bulletin will patch something pretty serious."

There's no word yet if "Patch Tuesday" will also contain a fix for a flaw that has been discovered in the Microsoft XML Core Services. While Microsoft did release a temporary patch, some security analysts are waiting to see if there will be a permanent fix for the issue next week.

The full details of the fixes will be revealed by Microsoft when the actual patches are released, but it's safe to say that with three labeled as critical, this is a must download for users of Windows and IE 9.

I wish ppl who talk bull**** and don't know nothing shut their mouth and mind their business.
IE 9/10 are the most secure browsers.
I don't understand Google has shown before what kind of company is. Spying on ppl , stealing their personal info isn't what end users want. Yeah the Spyware company (Google) made a browser, well good that it supports standards coz its enough to fool end users. I'm proud to say that Its been more than a year that no Google or Google related products and software have been run on my Computer including their stupid search engine and I blv after 10 years working in security field, studying security and system engineering I have the most secure computer/OS with IE9 on it.
Since started using Windows 7 and Microsoft Security Essential , not a single virus or spyware or malware !

You must be at least 28 if you have been working 10 years, but you still write lik dis bro. OK, I sometimes write like that as well, but not normally on here.

Anyway... so you work in "security field" and trust proprietary closed source solutions more over open-source solutions. You would prefer to run IE9 over something like Firefox which isn't a "spyware" company and is also open source? You also believe you have the "most secure system computer/OS with IE9 on it", are you serious? Never mind BSD - you are now redundant.

The people who say Google is a spyware company are really the ones who in your words "talk bull**** and don't know nothing"....and as you said should "shut their mouth and mind their business"

Only reason even Chrome is in existance, is because of MS adding Tracking Protection to IE7. Not much later they began work on a browser, due to the fact they where unable to properly track allot of users on the web anymore.
Hey and whatdooyaknow. Allot of people are using Chrome nowadays. Tracked everything they do, the links they visit, the urls they click. Their whole internet history, is on google's servers, plain text, unencrypted and for everyone waving money to see (or any government).
Yet these 'droids' as google fans are usually described. Still show all their love and honour and must make you use their browser! everyone they know must use their browser. Its almost like a goddamn religion.
I for one dont care what browser who is using. I do share my personal opinion and knowledge on browsers if people are just ... to dumb.
I got Palemoon, IE, opera and ironware installed. I mainly use IE, but often also switch and use either palemoon, opera or ironware for days, weeks, months on end (varies). As i do not use plugins and my favorities are stored in my brain (or google search)

I personally stopped using Google (except the search sometimes as Bing still lacks outside the US, but Bing is getting there... i have faith ) when i noticed that what i got emailed, showed to me in ads.... I dont mind ads, for information/data i myself release. ie using the google search or similar. But what i get mailed to me... is for ME alone, and not for advertising purposes.
And slowly I started seeing the real Google... And I'm actually afraid of Google and its widespread culture.Its changing the internet, and not in a good way. Its changing it to an internet where privacy is no more. And I for one, love my privacy and anonimity on the internet. I chose to who I share my personal info... not let a company choose my who can know my personal info. (noone is walking on the streets with a big sign showing all their personal info)
I do use Live mail. Love it for the exchange support, altho thats mainly it. But no matter what I get mailed. I do not see it back in ads or whatnot. I also know that MS gets its money mainly from Windows + Office, and cooperate products (SQL, exchange, etc) And is not an advertising bussiness. (most Bing ads are for MS products anyways ) But they are not really selling my information. Plus I know my own information is stored encrypted where even MS employees cannot access my data. (live account data is encrypted with your own password. Google stores it plain text )

Google not a spyware company? really.
While I love their size and addition of competition in allot of markets. (Im a fan of competition, i often choose for products from small companies) But considering their main source of income, is selling personal information. The technique with almost everything they release. is track what the user is doing with their software/website.
If you fail to even recognise the fact that Google tracks everything you get mailed and mail in Gmail, Every website you visit, every link you click with Chrome. Every search you enter with google.com, every place you visit with google maps/earth.
And then show you advertisements based on this gathered information, giving the ones that buy this adspace, the information on who/what/where/when/why people viewed or clicked your adds..

maybe your right. the companies/people who create actual spyware, would be jealous over the info Google has on you.

Oh yes fyi I'm 30, yes I usually write like this for ppl who cant understand more than this and love to share their personal info with others !
Again for your info I wasted 4 years of my life struggling to find an easy way to configure open-source apps and OSs. I appreciate what Microsoft did for the world and made the work easy , made it easy to understand what a secure operating system is and how its done and how its configured !

Ummm, I don't remember if I even said anything about Firefox !

BSD ? most secure ? don't make me laugh ! oh let me ask you a question, what OS do you think Hotmail and MS mail services is running on ?

But it makes your argument look more mature. I try to write correct English when I have a hardware QWERTY keyboard. To be honest, I thought you were a 14 year old from Engadget or something.

I was just trying to make a point with Firefox. You mentioned Chromium/Chrome, which is open source, but everything in the URL goes to Google - which is fair enough if we don't want to use it. Internet Explorer is closed source and therefore, we don't actually know what is going on inside it - you are forced to trust Microsoft! Firefox is open source and doesn't send your information to Google - so why didn't you compare IE to Firefox instead?

Well according to this article http://hostwisely.com/blog/top...erious-server-applications/ "As an example, Yahoo uses FreeBSD for their servers, and even Microsoft uses it to power their Hotmail servers, which have tens of millions of users.". I know they used to run Solaris with Hotmail some years back. Though I thought it was a customised version of Windows Server with Exchange.

I find the problem with Windows and security is the GUI. It is too easy to overlook things from a user/administrator point of view. Also GUIs can sometimes include some dodgy/bad defaults. Most UNIX based stuff comes with the configuration in a fully locked down state until you configure it, file by file and line by line - therefore, you don't have to worry about the GUI potentially setting defaults in other areas unknowingly. That has been my limited experience so far between the two.

I wish Mac, iPad, iPhone,, iTunes, iPod, safari, Linux, unix, Firefox, Chrome, Google search, Android, or any other product you may use, dies.

Never gotten any malware on any of the 4 machines I use with IE10 / 9 You've got me on add-ons though. Depends on priorities.

i just kind of assumed many are on Firefox or Chrome. IE don't have the dominance it once had. so i don't see 'vast majority' there.

but at least IE9 is Microsoft's first real competition for Chrome/Firefox in while now. i think where IE9 is mostly as it's best is in hardware accelerated things.

What browser are you talking about? IE 9/10 is the most secure browser.

I've got ad-block and spell check built in to IE10... what more could I ask for in the add-in department?

malware, what malware? since the release of IE8 no other browser matches IE's security.
IE8 took 1.5 years before someone broke through the sandboxing.
And lack of addons indeed. The browser has everything i need build in.
I can restore closed tabs and windows like they where never closed at all, i remember a plugin for FF that could do this, half assed as it didnt restore tab position, grouped tab and actually reloaded the whole page (if something was entered in a box, it would be gone) it just saved the url you where on. IE9 reloads the saved memory print from the page. including where you were scrolled to, if you had text inputted somewhere etc.
The adaptive smart adblocker that even adblock plus doesnt come close to in my experience. With IE8+ you just turn on tracking protection, want it to learn fast, increase theshold to 3-5 instead of default 10. and it will slowly start removing the ads over time. No manual input needed ever again. Its smart enough to leave embedded video links, javascript etc to work.
hmm what else is there i would need browsing the web, where in FF i needed a plugin...
oh yeah, the popup blocker system. Chrome has similar, FF has not at all (yes as a plugin). I can disable ANY popup but still easily open pages in popups i want. Either use ctrl, ctrl+alt or middle mouse button.
Chrome has this too, but the middle mouse button barely works, and same for ctrl. And it will not open javascripted links.
Oh yeah and last time i used inprivate or similar on FF/Chrome... (been a while to be honest) whole FF and Chrome restarted into this 'porn mode' where IE just opened a new window in 'porn mode' and the other browsing would be unaffected.

oh yeah and 1 more thing, the plugins/addons IE does need (java, flash, pdf reader, etc) have a good overview list, even shows what might be slowing down your page loading. Install/uninstall/enable/disable on the fly, no browser restart needed... EVER (since IE6 btw!!)

People still use IE?

A comment like that would've gotten me a warning, as it seems I accumulated a few quite some time ago that I'm still waiting to lose! 6 months is about a ridiculous amount of time to wait for 1 warning to drop!

Anyway,
Yes, use IE 9 all the time, along with other browsers. Using it as I type, in fact.
